I’m depressed. I have been with my husband for 13 years. We have a 10-year-old daughter. Since my pregnancy, he has avoided sex with me. He has refused to discuss the reasons for his behaviour. He has also refused to have more children.
The reason: his obsession with his career. Three years ago, I discovered some sexual text messages. I checked his emails and was convinced that he has been emotionally involved with someone for six years.
I confronted about this but he denied it. A family friend intervened but he refused to admit to his infidelity. I cannot forgive him. The years when we could have been setting up a proper family, he was busy with other relationships.
His reason for the rift was that I didn’t support his career pursuits. Both of us know that our marriage
is over but we love our daughter.
We are scared of the impact of our divorce on her.
